Resolves to establish a State Normal School in the Count)- of Essex, were passed by the Legislature, and received the Governor's approval, April 16, 1853. The Board of Education, at their meeting, held on Thursday, June 2, 1850, decided to locate the same in Salem. The city of Salem furnished the site, formerly occupied for the Registry of Deeds, on Summer, corner of Broad streets, erected thereon a brick building, two stories high, sixty-seven feet square, — furnished the same to the acceptance of the Board, and received there- for the sum of six thousand dollars, appropriated by the Legislature for this purpose. The cost of the building was about thirteen thousand dollars, exclusive of the site which was estimated at five thousand dollars. The building contains on the lower floor a lecture room and six smaller rooms for library, apparatus, recep- tion, &c. ; on the second floor a school room sixty-five by forty feet — four recitation rooms and two smaller rooms, one for the use of the teachers and the other where the books of reference are deposited. On Saturday, September 3, 1853, workmen began to remove the old building. The new edifice was dedicated for educational purposes. Thursday, Sept. 14, 1854, — Governor Washburn presiding — address by ex-Governor Boutwell. NORMAL SCHOOL. 11 The State Normal School at Salem, is one of the four Schools established by the State of Massachusetts, and placed under the care of the Board of Education, for the purpose of aiding in the preparation of Teachers for the Public Schools. This one is intended for females only. A young lady to be admitted into this School must be at least 16 years of age ; must declare it to be her intention to become a teacher in the Public Schools of Massachusetts ; must promise to remain in the School for three consecutive terms ; and must deposit -with the Principal a Certificate of good moral character from some responsible person acquainted with her. She must also pass a satisfactory examination in Reading, Spelling, Defining, Writing, Arithmetic, English Grammar and Geography. The School year is divided into two terms, together amount- ing to forty weeks. One of the terms begins on the second Wednesday of March, and the other on the second Wednesday of September. The former is preceded by a vacation of four weeks, and the latter by one of eight weeks. A class will be admitted at the commencement of each term, and the examina- tion for such admission will take place at 10 o'clock, A.M., on the day preceding that on which the term is to begin. No person will be examined at any other time except for very strong and peculiar reasons. Those who have had experience in teaching, and whose literary qualifications are considered satisfactory, may be ad- mitted for one year ; and the same right is extended to those who are prepared to enter advanced classes. To those who enter as above, no charge is made, except that they pay a fee of $1.50 at the beginning of each term for the use of books. Persons wno intend to teach in other States or in Private Schools may be admitted on paying a reasonable tuition fee. Board may be obtained in respectable families in the city at $2.50 to $3.00 per week, washing and lights not included. 12 NORMAL SCHOOL. Very little other expense need be incurred, as all the reference books, and very nearly all the text-books are furnished by the State. This institution, in common with the others throughout the State, is entitled to draw from the State Treasury $1000 per annum, to be expanded in aiding such deserving young ladies as find the expense of attending the School burdensome. Each applicant for aid, who boards in the city, may receive from this fund $1.50 per week, after the first thirteen week3 of her at- tendance. Others for the fame time, will receive smaller sums, varying with the distance they are obliged to travel to reach the School. These rates, however, must be reduced whenever the number of applicants is so large a3 to require it. But this, as yet, is far from being the case. The Cours3 of Study, as at present arranged, includes : — Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Geography, Projections of the Sphere, Physical Geography, Astronomy, Mechanics, Hydrosta- tics, Pneumatics and Optics, Anatomy and Physiology ; Spell- ing, Reading, Etymology, Critical Study of English Authors, History of English Literature, English Grammar, Art of Reason- ing, Rhetoric and Composition, Latin, Theory and Practice of Teaching. In the regular course, Latin is elective ; also, to a certain extent, Algebra and Geometry. Regular instruction is also given in Vocal Music by an effi- cient teacher. Prof. A. Guyot is employed to lecture before the School on Physical Geography ; and gentlemen eminent in their several departments, are to be engaged as lecturers in other branches of Natural Science. For those who are willing to remain in the School a sufficient length of time, an extensive course, including the higher Math- ematics, and the Latin and Erench Languages will be arranged. Those young ladies who have previously graduated at High Schools, or similar institutions, will accomplish this course in less time than others, whose advantages have been more limited.
